I saw another reviewer had a truck very similar to mine, and the tires lasted the same mileage. I would like to say that I am an automotive technician by trade, and I keep my vehicles in good condition. I always rotate my tires and inspect my suspension/alignment every 3-5k miles when I change my oil. I had these tires on my 1996 Dodge ram truck, and they lasted 23,000 miles. That is AWFUL. I understand these are a value tire and are priced much lower than name brand tires, but that is very low life. <br /><br />I would like to say that for the first year of owning these tires, they did handle very well, and they were very quiet on the highway. They also provided very good traction in dirt roads and some other off road conditions I tested them on. However, I noticed the rubber compound had very poor traction on wet roads. Even when they had a lot of tred left, they would slip and slide very easily on a rainy day. I would highly recommend staying away from Nexen tires and spending a bit more on a better name brand tire with a warranty.

I'm a daily commuter from a mountain location to a city at the bottom... about 38 miles one way. I drive a 2002 Ranger 4x4. I am not a soft gentle driver, but I keep the suspension in good shape and aligned. I bought these in February and they aren't even halfway down. So... given that I live in the moutains, any treadwear warranty would not apply, so the fact that these do not have a treadwear warranty doesn't bother me... these like any other tires will last as well as the condition of the car and where you live.

I am very un happy with these tires. We bought them at 142,000 on my truck and I was at 162,544 and they are down to 4 32nd.and all even ware. and rotated every 3000 too 4000 miles. I work at a tire shop that is just starting too sale the tires. The sales rep came in from nexen tires to talk to us and tell us about the tires. I told them about my tire showed him the receit and the tires on the truck. He said he will see what he can do and i ended up having too call him 3 diffrent times getting the run around. He told me they are not going to do anything for me. That the truck is too big for the tires. It is a 95 dodge ram 2500 4x4 diesle single cab. tires are ment for the truck is LT265/75R16 E load and thats what is on it. the sales rep told me not to tell are costermores about thire tires are no good. I am not going too lie too the peple that come threw are shop and sell them junk tires.
